A couple weeks ago the kids graduated from 5th grade – moving on into junior high now. During graduation both kids were awarded the Glory of Missouri award. These awards are awarded to kids by the Missouri House of Representatives for noteworthy achievement in one of the 14 human virtues that engraved in the House’s chambers. Megan received her award for Fraternity and Sam received his for Justice.
The also received a Presidential Education Award for outstanding academic achievement and a nice letter from President Bush – the kids were impressed. Additionally Megan picked up the Luther Hatcher citizenship award from Optimist International and received a nice medal.
Additionally they picked up several other recognitions for their hard work this past year. All-in-all I’d say they had a pretty good year. Sheri and I are both pretty darn proud of them!
